and that often kills them. to put a little close on this and a chance for us to converse, what is fascinating is the degree of duality in the great executive we studied. for example, is it 20 mile marching or defining moment in their capacity to do both? 20 mile marches with discipline and superb performance in a defining luck event moments that are out of their control. why did they do so much better? in the book, we noticed that over time, great executives will recall people had the genius of "and"as opposed to the tyranny of "or." it is humility and will. it is confront the brutal facts and having faith. it is productive and paranoid. when we stand back and look at a truly great enterprise, we see a huge duality under any great enterprise. that is what we call, preserved because for and stimulate progress - the core and stimulate progress. no great company exists if it does not have a core or stimulates progress. they are willing to change their practices, their strategies, there structures without compromising core values. they understand the difference between their core values and their

of hardship and uncertainty, you've seen the last few days some of the largest and most important u.s. companies report sagging profits, those who believe that the europe -- situation in europe would not directly affect u.s. companies are beginning to see they were more wrong than right. i think giving as much as you can to big companies, medi medium-sized and small companies around any and everything government will or won't do is critical. extending tax cuts for all americans going to solve all our fiscal cliff issues? no. short of congress being able to do something meaningful, sustainable they should probably extend the cuts for everyone and look forward to the beginning of next spring or next year deal with sequestration, long-term fiscal responsibility, sustainability, but short of that, i don't know how this gives any more certainty, any more comfort. as you've talked on the show many times in the past, to businesses across the nation. what concerns me, you see the front page of the newspapers, europe's crisis hits profits, rising food prices. american consumer and business lea

for joining us in that conversation of success. we are joined today by three very powerful when women to my right is carol mackey, the editor-in-chief of the black expressions book club and the author of [inaudible] my goodness. to her right is the one and only zane. zane we know her work. i liked zane's work because i would have this book here and behind the book i would be reading zane. [laughter] she is what we call a brown dab author. we all know about zane's success. her work has been translated in many languages across the world, and for me that explains the recent growth in population across the world. to her right is charmaine parker, the publishing director of strebor books and author of -- >> the next phase of flight. estimate what is interesting about these women is that they are both powerhouses in publishing but also authors so they know the park. and because of the digital shift , the understand the black books in particular are imperiled because we are market-driven and publishers really pay attention based on how many books we purchased. so when that switches over to digital
's argument had "injured us more, and has been as great a barrier to our emancipation as any thing that has ever been advanced against us," for it had " sunk deep into the hearts of millions of the whites, and never will be removed this side of eternity." so, the ideal of equality jefferson proclaimed, he also betrayed. he got it right when he wrote about "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." as the core of our human aspirations. but he lived it wrong, denying to others the rights he claimed for himself. and that's how jefferson came to embody the oldest and longest war of all -- the war between the self and the truth, between what we know and how we live. so enjoy the fireworks and flags, the barbecues and bargain sales. but hold this thought as well -- that behind this fourth of july holiday are human beings who were as flawed and conflicted as they were inspired. if they were to look upon us today they most likely would think as they did then, how much remains to be done. with those contradictions of american history in mind, this seemed a good time to talk with khalil gibran muh
class men. the polls are showing us while he is doing well with women and some other groups, this is a group that seems to be wavering between president obama and mitt romney. a recent average, shows the president with less than a three-point lead within the margin of error. on the fourth o of july, he addressed military members saying we need more immigration laws that allow immigrants to stay, like the dream act. mitt romney was up in new hampshire. while he tried to shy away from politics officially, he has been wrapped up in this debate over whether or not he contradicted himself in his campaign over the health care mandate. is it a penalty? is it a tax? romney says the supreme court called it a tax, so it is a tax. his campaign said otherwise. we will likely turn the focus back to the economy as new job numbers come out for june. lynn? >>> scientists at the large hadron collider have announced they have likely discovered the so-called god particle. it may explain how stars, planets, even life, how these things were created and held together. science editor, lawrence mcg
in the first price. but you know what? mcconnell explains that whole thing to us, too. in january 2011, he gave an interview to the atlantic in which he said we worked very hard to keep our fingerprints off these proposals because we thought that the only way the american people would know a great debate was going on was if the measures were not bipartisan. you know what? mcconnell was correct. i think that's one of the most profound things anyone has said about politics. what he understood is what makes a bill bipartisan is not the ideas in it or the spirit in which it is offered. it's whether any legislatures from the other party sign on. if they do, by definition, the bill is partisan. so by keeping his members off thedemocrats' major bills, he made each and every one of those pieces of legislation into a partisan bill and destroyed the president's hope for image as a bipartisan compromiser. this week on fox news, mcconnell gave another remarkably honest interview. they have been saying repeal and replace, repeal and replace, but they haven't come together behind anything that would replace
mandate is a tax. that is romney's position, the new position. and he's using it to his advantage now, blasting the president for breaking a promise to raise taxes -- not to raise taxes on the middle class. >>> it kind of felt like 1776 for a lot of americans, the hottest and stickiest night out there without any relief. >> still is. >> can you imagine? this is a serious bummer. about 700,000 people still with no power across 12 states and the nation's capital this morning. six days after the powerful series of storms went blowing through, fueled by extreme heat. this is what washington's massive power outage looks like from space. it's kind of obvious. amazing before-and-after images taken by a nasa satellite for us. extensive power outages in washington and baltimore. visible, clearly, in these images. looks like stars if you squint and you realize you're looking the other way. in west virginia, the heat and the power outages have led to a food crisis, too. people having to toss out everything from their freezers and stores also. look at the shelves. >> empty. >> everything was spoi
that as technology allows us, that our two great countries will be united in the air, not through war, but by peace. and orteig was so inspired by that, that night he went home, he joined the aero club of america which was a sponsor and club for the dinner. and he wrote a letter saying i hope -- i'm going to donate $25,000 for this price, which was basically a nonstop flight from new york to paris, or paris to new york, you know, 3600-mile trip. he did not know at the time the $25,000 was one-eighth of this liquid capital and so if there had been an emergency he would have been slitting his own throat. but lucky for him he only realized that long afterwards. most of the flyers, all but one team, they started out in long island right around here, where is the roosevelt mall? that would? write that way. okay. and long island was a natural airfield. the center of nassau county, which would've been over there where the roosevelt mall is, was not as hempstead plains, and hempstead plains was the only naturally occurring prairie east of the alleghenies. it was flat. there were no trees. there were few fa
